KIBSD Meetings on Elementary School Configuration


Our Kodiak Island community is facing tough decisions. The Kodiak Island Borough School District is requesting your insight into possible solutions.  Budget cuts, declining enrollment numbers, larger class sizes, and limited teacher recruitment challenge our endeavors to deliver the kind of education our students deserve. We are exploring possible solutions which could reconfigure our town elementary schools, by grouping schools into specific grade levels (Pre K-1, 2-3, 4-5).


We look forward to your participation in these meetings to share your perspectives. We invite you to join any or all of these critical meetings. Information gathered will be presented to the Board of Education during a work session in January 2019.


If you have any questions, please contact your child’s principal.
